Proving they’re the perfect mixture of ignorance and heartless cruelty to be the media-arm of the Republican Party, Fox News seems to be hitting bottom all the time in the Donald Trump era.
Host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery was recently trying to sarcastically downplay the dire warnings from Democratic lawmakers who are suggesting that Trumpcare would result in millions of Americans losing coverage and tens of thousands likely dying as a result by saying that Democratic reaction was an hysterical overreaction and shouldn’t be taken seriously.
“You know what, at least they [Democrats in Congress] are not employing any hyperbole at all. You know what the crazy thing is? We’re all going to die. And they can’t predict — there’s no way unless they are absolutely psychic and have a party line to heaven, they don’t know who’s going to die or when or how many people.”
Is it ok for the GOP to help speed that up as much as possible by passing their health care bill? Should Obamacare be repealed and replaced with this kind of legislation?
Around 45,000 Americans died each year from lack of health-coverage before Obamacare took affect, and most of the experts predict the number will again be in the tens of thousands.
